The real estate profession as a lot of ‘initials’ to denote the level of training and expertise of agents and brokers. To the general public it most likely makes no sense! I’d like to share a few of my ‘initials’ so that you have an idea of the depth of my knowledge of real estate. My hope is that you will see what I have to offer you as well show you my level of dedication to my clients, the real estate community at large and my ongoing quest for in-depth knowledge of the real estate market.
Education and learning has been a lifelong passion of mine.
